As long as the bottle has not been opened, or if opened is used within a reasonable time frame e.g. one month, microbiological purity can be guaranteed. However, do not take Pharmaton® Capsules/Caplets if the expiry date on the packaging has passed. After the expiry date we cannot guarantee complete microbiological purity, given the strict testing conditions.

How can you be sure of no contamination?

As a crop, the quality of Ginseng roots can vary significantly from one farm to another, and even from one harvest to another. Without proper quality-assurance guidelines, contamination with chemicals and pesticides is possible. However, today, due to our extensive efforts in working with farmers and supervising the cultivation and harvesting processes, almost 90% of incoming ginseng batches meet our high Pharmaton® Capsules/Caplets standards.

Does Pharmaton® Capsules/Caplets interact with other medication?

If you are taking other medication before taking Pharmaton® Capsules/Caplets, make sure you consult your doctor to ensure maximum safety, particularly check with your physician if you are taking or planning to take anticoagulants (blood thinning products), as ginseng might reduce their effect.

Can Pharmaton® Capsules/Caplets be taken in pregnancy?

No clinical data are available with the use of Pharmaton® Capsules/Caplets in pregnant women. Using the recommended dosage, there is no evidence that Pharmaton® Capsules/Caplets represents a risk for the foetus during pregnancy. As with many other medicines, an assessment of benefits versus risks should be made before Pharmaton® Capsules/Caplets is administered during this time. According to general medical practice, the use of this product by pregnant or breastfeeding women should be decided by the prescribing doctor. Alternatively, Pharmaton® Matruelle, a combination of multivitamins and minerals with Omega-3 fatty acids is an alternative and targeted choice for this group.

Can Pharmaton® Capsules/Caplets cause nausea?

Very rarely, nausea after intake of Pharmaton® Capsules/Caplets has sometimes been reported. We believe that this problem may be caused by a temporary or permanent hypersensitivity to the gelatine contained in the capsule shell. This, however, sets in generally after the first intake; it is often transient and subsides after a short period of treatment. If it persists, then we usually advise the consumer to stop taking the capsules.
